Hi

In svn book ver. 1.0 there is written:
"Deflate compression places a small burden on the client and server to
compress and decompress network transmissions as a way to minimize the size
of the actual transmission. In cases where network bandwidth is in short
supply, this kind of compression can greatly increase the speed at which
communications between server and client can be sent. In extreme cases, this
minimized network transmission could be the difference between an operation
timing out or completing successfully."
In the same book in version 1.5 there is no word about why/why not. Is it
mean that mod_deflate is not recomended for current versions of svn? I did
tests on svn 1.6.9 and compression rate is about 30-40 percent and checkout
times are ~30% less

Thanks
Leszek
